Eagles Stunned By Bears 19-16 at Home

Chicago Bears' Danieal Manning, left, is late as Philadelphia Eagles' Matt Schobel catches a touchdown pass in the second half of their football game Sunday, Oct. 21, 2007 in Philadelphia. The Bears won 19-16.

The Eagles allowed a win to slip away right at the end of the game – losing to the Chicago Bears 19-16 in front of a stunned crowd at Lincoln Financial Field.  With less than two minutes to play and the Eagles up by four, the defense, which had been stellar all game, allowed the Bears to march 97 yards down the field with no timeouts left to score the game winning touchdown with just seconds left to play. The quick collapse actually began with the offense, which failed to run out the clock.   Once again, the offense struggled in the red zone.  They managed just three field goals before finally scoring a touchdown late in the fourth quarter, to retake a short-lived lead.  The Eagles are now 2-4 and have put in themselves in a big hole if they want to make the playoffs.  They play next Sunday at Minnesota.
